Mel's men pulled off a vital 1-0 win at relegation rivals Norwich on Saturday, a result which cost counterpart Chris Hughton his job.

The build-up to the Carrow Road showdown was dominated by reports of a dressing room bust-up, but the three points appear to have drawn a line under those issues.

Mel - who was appointed on an 18-month contract as successor to Steve Clarke in January - insists he is thinking no further than the end of the season, with his future beyond May unclear.

Mel was asked if goalscorer Morgan Amalfitano, on loan from Marseille, was a player he would like to keep hold of next season.

And his reply revealed uncertainty over his own future at the Hawthorns.

"I don't know where I am going to be next season," he said.

"This is a different country, a different language, another way of doing things, but I said at the time (of my appointment) I would make sure that I met the objective (of staying up) and that is what is taking place.

"This is a league in which anyone can take points of anyone, you can take points off Chelsea and you can take points off Liverpool which is why it is the most competitive league in the world."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
